Clearwater International advises Nexxpro on sale of minority stake to BESI


Asesor de Clearwater

Nexxpro is a young company, founded in 2001, that focuses on the development and manufacture of plastic and fiber helmets coated with different materials.

Its brand – Nexx Helmets – is becoming increasingly recognised worldwide and its products have won both national and international awards for quality and design. Currently, the brand has representation in more than 50 countries.

To meet the fast growing demand for its helmets, which was displayed through a growth in turnover of circa 62% between 2011 and 2014, the company has an ongoing plan to expand its production capacity which includes the construction of a new plant.

Clearwater International Portugal’s partner Rui Miranda and senior analyst Duarte Vaz advised the shareholders of Nexxpro on the sale of a minority stake of the company to BESI.

“Working with Clearwater International to achieve success on this process was enriching. Rui Miranda and his team supported us throughout the process, providing excellent and creative advice during complex situations. The team showed commitment to getting the deal done in the expected time and achieving a great result for us. We were thoroughly impressed with their expertise and work ethic, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Clearwater International to anyone seeking corporate finance advice.”

“This deal represents the next exciting stage of Nexxpro’s development. The company and its brand has established itself as an exciting player in the helmet industry, bringing together engineering and design to deliver award-winning products to a very competitive market. With the backing of BESI, the company will be able to increase its production and become a market leader to compete with the best in the industry.”
